Skateboards as the “devil’s toy” – amazing footage from 1960s Montreal

Skateboards are “missiles” and the “devil’s toy”… this black and white documentary from Montreal, Canada in the 1960s is amazing.

Love the music, and ridiculously overblown commentary. And can’t help thinking how completely sweet and non-menacing these guys look as they cruise about on their wooden boards in their knitwear, especially compared to the remorseless mobs that were trashing London last night.
